    High CK Level in Toddler

    Jsantiago12 posted:
    My son was recently tested and found CK levels of 50,000. We were automatically directed to a neurologist to interpret the results. Doctor requested, after two weeks, another CK test but this time the levels were at 11,000. What causes the CK to increase so high, and come down to the new levels of 11k? The prognosis with first test results were MD.

    Hi Jsantiago12,

    Thanks for posting. I'm so sorry to hear that your son has been having a tough time.

    Have you spoken to your doctor about the cause of your son's high CK levels? If not, I really encourage that you do. You have every right to receive a firm understanding of not only your son's diagnosis, but potential reasons for that diagnosis so that you can proactively work to prevent a high reading again in the future.

    Here is a link to information on WebMD that I hope might help.
